The letter we are considering this week is T
and T might stand for Troubadour
one of a class of medieval lyric poets
who frequented parts of Southern France from about the 11th to the 13th centuries.
They wrote songs and poems of a complex metrical form
chiefly about love and courtliness.
They were very popular with the ladies!
and led a rather transient life.
For more intriguing Ts trip on over to ABC Wednesday, here,
with thanks to Mrs. Nesbitt.
